Abstract

This thesis explores the use of the word associative game Codenames in language learning, especially learning English as the second language. In order to achieve the goal, it addresses the problem of explaining semantic relations among words. The explanations take advantage of word sketches, provided by the Sketch Engine tool, and of word descriptions available in specialized English dictionaries. The implemented extension of the previously created engine for playing Codenames enables explaining the automatically suggested relations among the hint words and intended words in each game, motivating users for further exploration of the studied language.
